Backing up your website to the remote storage location of your choice is something UpdraftPlus have put a lot of time and effort into working on. We currently have a wide-range of supported remote storage options including Google Drive, Amazon S3 and DropBox.

Another remote storage option UpdraftPlus supports is Microsoft Azure. You can create a free Azure account for 12 months that offers users a wide choice of free Azure products and includes 5GB of LRS-Hot Blob Storage with 20,000 read and 10,000 write operations.

While connecting an Azure account may not be quite as simple as Google Drive, by following our easy to understand ‘step-by-step’ instructional video below, you can start backing up your website to Azure in next to no time.
